OnRender Event for List widget

The onRender event gets triggered when the list widget has rendered.

Use case

A user wants to select a specific item on a page load by passing the index/model of the list item.


Add the onRender callback event and call the selectItem method (exposed on the list widget) by passing index/model of the item.

Page.EmployeeList1Render = function(widget, $data) {
widget.selectItem(2); (OR) widget.selectItem($data[2]);

Event Execution Order



If you enable selectfirstrecord and write widget.selectItem(5) in the onRender event, then the first item gets selected. The selectfirstrecord takes preference because onRender event triggers before the select event. If you want to select a specific item then you should turn off the selectfirstrecord.
